Pressure the Hinges Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Eye Of The Needle 1:18
Wake up now.
2. Pressure The Hinges 4:11
And now I'm running out of reasons.
And I spoke too soon.
The clock weighs on the counter top.
Everything is sinking through the floor.
You hold the door and I'll pressure the hinges.
Would you trust these locks?
And sleep to hide your secrets?
Dodging bullets is easier when you don't believe in fate.
And I swear, I swear we won't make it obvious when we turn around again.
What are you afraid of?
Are you scared you're not alone?
You keep running out.
Turn around again.
You aspire to be helpless, hopeless.
Burning all your dreams I'm running low on secrets that will quench your thirsty ears.
And I'm counting the seconds between distraction and the moment.
Fifteen seconds till melt down.
Fifteen seconds till the roof will hit the floor.
I see the light in the stairway and the floor is lettered with maps and hotel keys.
So we turn around again.
Wear the robe of pig skin and he'll wear the crown.
He'll run and he'll run and he'll run till you stop him.
I see your eyes changing and your passions gone again.
You're still running out.
We desire to be comfort in this broken world you're in.
Fifteen seconds till...
fifteen seconds till...
3. The Minor Prophets 4:17
Have you seen the sun?
Have you seen the sun?
Or has the darkness dragged you further from your door?
Take each other's hands.
Look into the clouds.
Such a beautiful song we sing.
Finally finding our own way back home.
Such a beautiful song we sing.
Oh no, this is no time for excuses.
We've singled you out and the leaders keep running away.
The sound of trumpets will carry you home.
The sound of trumpets will resound and we all sing.
Take each other's hands.
Look into the clouds.
Such a beautiful song we sing.
Finally finding our own way back home.
Such a beautiful song we sing.
Re-break the bone to assure the healing.
So that we might know you again.
Re-break the bone.
Re-break the bone.
Re-break the bone.
Sound the alarm like a vulture on the nation with silver.
Oh no, have we sealed our own destruction?
Walking away from the only thing that matters.
Re-break the bone.
Re-break the bone Re-break the bone to assure the healing.
Re-break the bone.
Know you again.
Take each other's hands.
Look into the clouds.
Such a beautiful song we sing.
Finally finding our way home.
Such a beautiful song we sing.
The sound of trumpets will carry you home.
The sound of trumpets will resound and we will sing.
Re-break.
4. The Oracle 3:31
These lights are gone.
My ears hear no sound.
Folding between the skin and bone.
We will hear and know.
Folding back our ears and slow grows our heart searching for.
Searching for the sound.
The secret in your eyes.
Is your voice dead to me?
Or just too far away?
Searching for the sound.
I'm listening.
When scenery is taken.
These lights are gone.
My ears hear no sound.
Folding between the skin and bone.
Skin and bone.
Searching for the sound.
The secret in your eyes.
Is your voice dead to me?
Or just too far away?
Searching for the sound.
I'm listening.
When scenery is taken.
5. White Collar 4:27
Why can't you feel this?
Can't you understand I feel this?
This is nothing.
I can see my reflection in your cheek bone.
We've been playing out this script in your mind.
Here we go with a fresh perspective.
You'll paint the walls with your stone face tactics.
And we'll walk around.
Eyes on the crowd.
And don't you think about tomorrow.
You shut me out.
I just don't want to fake it anymore.
I'm burning out.
Your motions empty and you've hit the floor.
You shut me out.
The sweet relief of saying, you shield your heart from breaking.
Get up, get out now.
Get up, get out.
In the glow of the moonlight serenade.
Unleash the knowledge of the white collar escapade.
Speak the words that unlock the truth.
And you'll paint the walls.
You'll paint the walls.
We'll walk around.
Eyes on the crowd.
Don't you think about tomorrow.
You watched me follow fools to the sea.
Tie the stones that bring me down below the tide.
Down and down.
What am I supposed to do? You shut me out.
I just can't live like this anymore.
I'm burning out.
It doesn't feel like it once did before.
You shut me out.
The sweet relief of saying, you shield your heart from breaking.
Get up, get out now.
Get up, get out.
6. Needles 4:18
Behind the wind and trees and obstacles we see.
And it brings these walls to life.
You owned us.
You called us your own possession.
Behind the age chipped paint.
We read our destinies in what they left behind.
Locked in our own dreams.
You owned us.
You called us your own possession.
You left behind hopes and dreams of a life left incomplete.
You walked away from everything you believed in when you wanted to change the world.
You left behind all remains.
You left behind all that remains.
You left behind hopes and dreams of a life left incomplete.
You walked away from everything you believed in when you wanted to change the world.
Save it its needles in your fingertips.
7. Janet's Planet 4:29
Walk me to the desert and leave me.
I'll dig my own way home.
8. Servant Ties 4:12
It's in your eyes.
The look of certainty.
The look of apathy.
It's in your eyes.
I'm not so sure that we have nothing to lose.
Should have held this closer.
Staple your note to the back door.
Until then, your gut can tell you this.
Does anyone hear me? Does anyone honestly?
It will fall to pieces.
It will fall to pieces.
Find home, hold strong.
When everything is taken, you're empty.
We'll see a purpose.
Just need to stand as one.
Do these thoughts have syllables or am I mumbling?
Do I seem tense when I carry your load?
Or am I, or am I losing it?
Take all, take everything.
It's hard to stop from dropping it all on you.
The heart will hurt when it's crushed by the weight of the leaves on the trees.
We'll see a purpose.
We'll stand as one.
I'm not so sure we've lost anything.
But while you're listening.
I'm hurting for something better.
Till then, your gut, your gut can tell you this.
9. Stitches 4:11
Five words, five words is all it would take.
Five words to change your heart and mind.
In the heat of the sun I know you're the only one.
You still cant' hold yourself together.
Alone... Alone... All alone you have this conversation to satisfy your most intimate inner thoughts.
Then you bite your lip when it matters most.
A shade of red in sight.
Can you taste the blood?
Taste it on your lips.
Rip the seam.
Then I'll show you how the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In your silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
Your growing imagination preparing you for what your heart requires to say.
Then you bit your lip when it matters most.
A shade of red in sight.
Can you taste the blood? Taste it on your lips.
Rip the seam.
Then I'll show you how the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In your silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
Five words, repeating over in your head.
That's all you ever have to do.
Five words, repeating over in your head.
That's all you ever have to do.
Five words.
Is it really that hard to say you're worth more that this?
1) You're
2) worth
3) more
4) than
5) this.
Rip the seam.
Then I'll show you how the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
In you silence we are louder.
When the strings become the stitches in your mouth.
10. Vertigo 2:51
Vertigo hits.
Tonight we dance.
What dance has brought us to a disfigured ballroom where we march in fine rows and our heels, our heels touch the ground.
Beauty forsaken.
Our weakness comes from desire for solace.
Tonight we cry.
Trust in the falling walls.
Scars in the face of fear.
Scars on our hearts.
No use screaming when all that hear are deaf ears.
Beauty forsaken.
Our weakness comes from desire for solace.
Tonight we cry.
Trust in the falling walls.
11. Akeldema 2:49
When the skin breaks.
He thought time could heal his growing shame.
These white hot knives will turn to fire and they'll burn.
He stumbled out of the bedroom.
Feel the shock moving up and down his spine.
He's running out of the building.
She's going crazy.
Screaming, asking 'why?'
If you look for a savior to finally be free, free from all his failure, that's all you'll ever see.
He stumbled into the bathroom, shut the door and fell right to his knees.
He tried to look in the mirror.
His eyes are bleeding.
He's asking please.
When the skin breaks.
He thought time could heal his growing shame.
These white hot knives will turn to fire and they'll burn.
He cannot heal before he breaks.
Sounds weakening.
Death sets in as his stomach quickly hits the floor.
The stench of a rotting lie has found its way to your brain.
It pulls the trigger and opens your eyes to spot the reeking stain.
He thought it would solve all his problems.
He sees now that the blood will never wash away.
Now can't you hear what he's saying?
While you've been screaming you've been drowning the ladder so you can float to the top instead of climb.
And I assure you that I'm not the one for you.

13. Chorus Of Angels 6:12
Chorus of Angels
Destroy my silence
That haunts me, that claims me
When darkness walks beside me

Chorus of Angels
Destroy my silence
That haunts me, that claims me
When darkness walks beside me

I saw the Angels sing
Along to wake up the beautiful sleeping world
Their voices will rise to test the strength of men
Wake up the beautiful sleeping world

(We fall down)
We will see the fire
The skies will open up
The clouds will burn red and
Our sins will forget us
And time will not shake us
Our hearts are made of gold
These walls won't overtake us
These walls won't overtake us

I saw the Angels sing
Along to wake up the beautiful sleeping world
Their voices will rise to test the strength of men
Wake up the beautiful sleeping world

We will see the fire
The skies will open up

The clouds will burn red and
Our sins will forget us
And time will not shake us
Our hearts are made of gold
These walls won't overtake us
These walls won't overtake us

I saw the Angels sing
Along to wake up the beautiful sleeping world
Their voices will rise to test the strength of men
Wake up the beautiful sleeping world

Chorus of Angels
Destroy my silence
That haunts me, that claims me
When darkness walks beside me

Chorus of Angels
Destroy my silence
That haunts me, that claims me
When darkness walks beside me

(Chorus of angels lead me in a prayer that will shake the foundations of the earth. Wake up now)
I saw the Angels sing
Along to wake up the beautiful sleeping world
I saw the Angels sing
Wake up the beautiful sleeping world
